Custom Deck – Solon, OH


Recently, JM Design Build, a general contractor in Cleveland Ohio, helped a family in Solon, OH build the deck of their dreams. The couple had been living in the house for years and, when they realized they weren’t going anywhere for a while, they decided to invest their money into something that made sense not only economically but that was also emotionally rewarding.


The couple, excited to get the process started, met with our professional design team so we could get a feel for their needs. While it is true that most people have a good idea of the improvements they would like to make to their home, we are able to provide either better, more economical, or more efficient solutions to almost 90% of the homeowners we meet with. Such is the case with this family in Solon Ohio; they had a strong idea of how they wanted to use their deck, yet we were able to far surpass their expectations.

For instance, the couple needed a big deck because they are always entertaining friends and family, hosting parties, and cooking out with neighbors. However, their main concern was building a handicap accessible deck so that their son could also take part in these cherished gatherings.

Thus, JM Design Build crafted a plan, complete with professional drawings, that not only met but exceeded the family’s financial, social, and, perhaps most importantly, physical needs. Impressed with the drawings and initial consultations, they decided to invest in a deck by JM Design Build, one of the most trusted general contractors in Cleveland for over 30 years.


As you can see from the pictures, the homeowners in Solon, OH made a great choice. Once limited by indoor living space, the family now enjoys a 700 square foot deck off the rear of their home, strategically shaped around the mulch beds and gardening in the back of their home. Additionally, the deck includes a unique, red feature strip of decking that splits the deck into two asymmetrical sections, as well as a matching red belt line around the perimeter of the deck’s structure.

To accommodate the couple’s handicapped son, JM Design Build built a ramp for easy, safe access. Moreover, the deck was deliberately built on an even plane with the exit door to his room so that he could go outside and even into the back yard at his own leisure. Needless to say, this Solon, OH family is excited for summer. They now have a gorgeous, accessible, and spacious place to escape–right in their own backyard.
